"Please, sir," they said, "we came here to buy food once before.
When we stopped for the night, we opened our sacks, and each man found all of his money inside. So we brought it back with us.
We also brought more money to buy food. We have no idea who put our money back in our sacks."
"It's alright," he said. "Don't be afraid! Your God, the God of your father, must have given you treasure in your sacks. I received your money." Then he brought Simeon out to them.
The man took the brothers into Joseph's house. He gave them water to wash their feet and feed for their donkeys.
They got their gifts ready for Joseph's return at noon, because they had heard they were going to eat there.
When Joseph came home, they gave him the gifts they had brought to the house. Then they bowed to him with their faces touching the ground.
He asked them how they were. Then he said, "You told me about your elderly father. How is he? Is he still alive?"
They answered, "Yes, sir. Our father is alive and well." Then they knelt, bowing down.
As Joseph looked around, he saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son. "Is this your youngest brother, the one you told me about?" he asked. "God be gracious to you, my son," he said.
Deeply moved at the sight of his brother, he hurried away, looking for a place to cry. He went into his private room and cried there.
